Bradley Cooper, after showing us that he can bring it in front of the camera, in movies like American Hustle, The Hangover and Silver Linings Playbook, he now shows us that he can also bring it behind the camera, and oh boy he brought it
Not only he worked wonders directing this film, he was great acting in it as well, Lady Gaga was amazing as well, in a role that was basically tailored made for her, and really the supporting characters were amazing too.
The music is one of the best i've seen in a movie, music that contribute to the story, and give another depth to what is already a great movie.
The movie flows so well, the contrast between Ally's rising career and Jack's slowly hitting rock bottom with his alcoholism, was amazing.
The movie shows that, the music industry can make people lose themselves, as Ally starts with something to say, but quickly shifts into this typical pop sensation, showing and talking about her body, looking for approval, is epic. And lady gaga portrayed that really well. Seeing Jack, slowly realizing he's loosing her to the music industry is heartbreaking, and leading to the movies tragic scene. At times some characters moments seemed rushed, like important moments just seemed to be shoehorned in the movie, like their wedding, seemed to be really rushed, while i think it could have been a beautiful moment.
I have so much praise for this movie, it is definitely one of my favorites this year, and i can only recommend for people to watch it. I watched it in an almost empty room and it made me sad that more people didn't go watch this masterpiece… Expand
Average User Score: 6.3Oct 9, 2018This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Venom feels like it should have been at least 30 minutes longer.
The only positives i can think of on this movie, is Eddie Brock's character, Tom Hardy works wonder with a dreadful script. The interactions between Eddie and Venom are definitely the best part, but we got almost nothing of that.
Other characters however just seem to be there. Carlton Drake is a weak villain, who you will forget as soon as you get off the theatre. Riot, oh wow, riot was such a disappointment. We got 5 minutes of Riot vs Venom, and i actually liked it. But it was only 5 minutes.
The script is absolutely awful, certain characters decisions just seem to happen out of nowhere. When Venom decided to stay on Earth, he simply decided, there was no scene or point of turn around, in a space of 10 minutes he went from slowly killing Eddie, to wanting to stay on Earth.
End of the movie, i felt like i was robbed at least 30 minutes of important scenes, this movie felt like it had more to give. It's another complete misfire by Sony. I hope in the sequel they can make turn this around… Expand

The story of what could be a dive into different characters lives and their problems is totally skipped, making all the characters (expect for Kevin Hart's) seem like props, just to be used.
With this movie, Tiffany Haddish shows that she might just be able to play one type of character, a very bad performance from someone who really seemed uncomfortable in her role.
There are some hilarious moments, but really they don't completely make up for the moments of pure stupidity, bad acting and really making learning disabilities seem like a joke, then a problem… Expand
Average User Score: 5.6Aug 26, 2018This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The meg is by no means a great movie, but it is at least entertaining. The special effects are great, which is expected by the big budget they had.
Jason Statham is very good in it, he's character is actually has a better characterization than i expected, unfortunately other characters don't get the same privilege, making the deaths not sink in. I liked dynamic between Jason Statham and this little girl character "Meying".
They tried forcing a romance in their, but it just distracted me from the real action, because it was totally out of place. Amongst all that, the movie didn't take itself too seriously, it was quite funny, which i can appreciate. When Jason Statham stabs the Meg's eye, was just that awesome Jason Statham moment every movie of his needs to have. Overall a good watch… Expand
Average User Score: 7.3Aug 18, 2018You expect Ant-Man to be funny, and it truly manages to be hilarious, and very entertaining. The action sequences between Ghost and Ant-ManYou expect Ant-Man to be funny, and it truly manages to be hilarious, and very entertaining. The action sequences between Ghost and Ant-Man and the Wasp were so good, so well choreographed. The acting doesn't disappoint and i'm glad they gave Luis more piece of the action. It knows it's a comic book movie, and it treats itself like one.
Unfortunately the plot falls a bit flat, i didn't really see the need for the Sonny Burch character, that really felt like an unnecessary sub-plot in the end. Which kinda dragged down the movie.
You can sympathize with the villain, she just doesn't want to die, which most people can relate to. But i wish they would have deepen the relationship between Ghost and Foster, would have made for a much better movie.
End of the day it is a very entertaining and funny movie, and that's all i expected from Ant-Man and The Wasp, so i was far from disappointed… Expand
Average User Score: 5.6Aug 12, 2018Darkest Minds begins hitting heavy, but unfortunately fails to continue that way. What really seems to me like a remix of the movieDarkest Minds begins hitting heavy, but unfortunately fails to continue that way. What really seems to me like a remix of the movie "Divergent" (which isn't a good thing), The Darkest Minds, focuses on a very forced love story, forcing even more a triangle than actually focusing on children dying over something that gives the survivors powers.
Instead it turns into a generic, boring and heavily cliched movie, with corny dialogue that will make you roll your eyes until you have a migraine.
There is absolutely NO RESOLUTION to any plot lines, making this feel like a 104 minute long introduction to a sequel. But let's be honest here, will a sequel really happen?… Expand
Average User Score: 8.4Aug 6, 2018Being the 6th movie of a franchise, it could easily fall into the trap of a lazy story telling and generic action sequences. But i’m here toBeing the 6th movie of a franchise, it could easily fall into the trap of a lazy story telling and generic action sequences. But i’m here to tell you this movie does not. I’m amazed how after 6 movies, this franchise still manages to make unique movies like this.
Going to start talking about the action scenes. Completely amazing, purposefully, well thought out and well choreographed action sequences. This is what Fallout gives us, there was a scene, where Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and Walker (Henri Cavill) are fighting someone in a bathroom. The punches feel so real, the sequences was awesome, and brutal. The cinematography was amazing, more than what i was expecting from a Mission: Impossible movie. And that is because they use practical effects instead of CGI or green screen. That makes the experience as real as possible.
Performances, were great from everyone. Not only Tom Cruise, with amazing acting and stunts, but the supporting cast did a great job. Simon Pegg and Ving Rhames were incredible as always, Rabecca Ferguson also did a great job. And this has to be Henry Cavill’s best performance. He was great in the action scenes and his character felt intimidating like it should be.
Talking about the story is where i have my first minor issue with this movie. It seems a bit recycled, and to make it completely original after 6 movies, is a bit of a stretch. The big twist is a bit obvious, you can really see it coming. But this doesn’t make the story less mesmerizing, the script was great and the director did a great work into moving the story along in such a way that every scene, every shot and every line of dialogue is extremely important, because it really is.
The characters are great too. Ethan Hunt is incredibly charming, and the length he goes to not kill innocent people just makes him more of a compelling character. The villains where great, although i did want to see more from the main villain, as a character.
This movie is gonna be in a lot of peoples top lists for 2018, i’m 100% sure it’s gonna be on my top movie list for 2018, and you don’t really want to miss, what i can safely say, is one of the best action movies i’ve ever watched.… Expand
Average User Score: 6.8Jul 22, 2018This felt like a disney movie amped up to 11, and this isn't a good thing. The whole "fall in love after just meeting" is so old that evenThis felt like a disney movie amped up to 11, and this isn't a good thing. The whole "fall in love after just meeting" is so old that even disney doesn't do it anymore. Most characters are shallow and very under-developed. The script feels very childish, if that's the right word for it. Can't tell you how many times i rolled my eyes, at the stupid and corny things said by those characters. The amount of unnecessary sub-plots could have been taken out, cutting the movie to at least 90 minutes, Cher's character and plot line comes to mind. It certainly could have been more straight forward, to make it a better movie.
Being a lover of music, i have to admit, some songs are very catchy and good to listen to. The performances are good and convincing, but unfortunately this movie suffers a bit with Meryl Streeps absence, although that point is kind what drives the movie forward.
I wasn't expecting too much of this movie, but wasn't expecting it to be a combination of a live action disney movie and a mexican soap opera.… Expand
Average User Score: 6.5Jul 8, 2018This is a nice movie, about friendship and keeping your inner child after growing up. I really enjoyed some scenes, for a moment, the movieThis is a nice movie, about friendship and keeping your inner child after growing up. I really enjoyed some scenes, for a moment, the movie didn't take itself seriously, and it made it for some really enjoyable moments. Until the end, where it gets too serious, there's a HUGE bomb dropped about one of the main characters that comes out of nowhere and then disappears the same way it got.
The tag sequences where they are all trying to tag Jerry (Jeremy Renner) are the best scenes there, but there are parts of the dialogue with really unnecessary and just unlaughable jokes. Rebecca (Annabelle Wallis) is just a character who is used for exposition which was really poorly done.
In summary, it is a nice movie, that shows how friendships can survive the test of time. How adults should always keep hold of their inner child, even if it's just a small part.… Expand

Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway and theThis is a very enjoyable movie. Love it or hate it, you cannot deny the talent in it.
Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway and the rest of the cast do a great job, with a very shy script. Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock) makes for a likable character, but the rest of the team didn't feel natural to me
The chemistry between all of them was great, i guess the big problem i have with this movie is, the lack of stakes, as in, they don't really look like they're scared of what's going to happen if it goes wrong, and the movie doesn't make any attempts to keep you guessing.… Expand
